About the play A Kid Like Jake:
Written by Daniel Pearle, A Kid Like Jake is a story about two parents who are going through the application process to get their 4-year-old son, Jake into private schools in New York. On the eve of the admissions cycle Alex and Greg have high hopes for their son Jake, a precocious four-year-old who happens to prefer Cinderella to G.I. Joe. But as the process continues, Jake’s behaviour becomes erratic and perplexing, and other adults in his life start to wonder whether his fondness for dress-up might be cause for concern. The story of a husband and wife struggling to do right by their son, A KID LIKE JAKE is a study of intimacy and parenthood and the fantasies that accompany both.
The way that A Kid Like Jake deals with the parent-child relationship as it relates to gender-creativity and related themes and challenges that affect the queer community, is both powerful and beautiful and can serve as a way to open up dialogue within the audience themselves and within their families and communities. With this in mind, we hope that our production may help alleviate some of the burden placed on the LGBTQ2S+ community, and create a place for allies to assist in the road towards healing and acceptance within and outside the LGBTQ2S+ communities.
